Statewide Comprehensive Legal Needs Survey, 2003 (Summary)

The Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services (TALS) is a statewide, nonprofit organization. TALS’s primary purpose is to support the availability and effectiveness of civil legal services for Tennessee residents who must contend with severely limited resources as they face legal challenges. In order to better achieve this goal, TALS contracted with The University of Tennessee College of Social Work Office of Research and Public Service (SWORPS) to conduct a statewide assessment (Statewide Comprehensive Legal Needs Survey) of the civil legal needs among Tennessee’s low-income population. The findings presented in the summary represent only highlights from the statewide assessment. For more detailed data or survey information, the reader is directed to the full report.
